Bath & Body Works coming to Alaska

It’s a full-fledged tidal wave.

In the wake of Sephora, Lush and Ulta, another beauty retailer says it will open up in Anchorage: Bath & Body Works, slated to open in the Fifth Avenue Mall in May, according to a news release today:

“We are absolutely thrilled about these new retailers coming to the 5th Avenue Mall – and it’s always great to be home to Alaska’s firsts,” said Kari Skinner, Director of Marketing and Business Development at the mall. “Each store offers something unique for our shoppers, and the community has already expressed immense excitement and anticipation about their arrival. We can’t wait to celebrate their openings later this spring.”

And I can’t wait for the inevitable impulse purchases of hand sanitizer and candles in my near future (I hope Lilac Blossom is in stock when they open)… and to never, ever have to pay Bath & Body Works’ ridiculous $20 Alaska shipping charge again.
